has actually been on for the last two years -- now remember immediately after president obama became president, the united states took on a stimulus program, an enormous stimulus program of a little over $700 billion and that actually created the start of the rebirth of the american economy, but only lasted for a year, year and half and we undertook at the behest at the request of my republican colleagues an austerity budget over the decades beginning in 2011. we will see nearly $2 trillion reduction in federal expenditures in the 10-year period. that is what austerity is all about. and today, if you were trying to get on an airplane somewhere in the united states, you were beginning to see yet one more effect of austerity. and that is the air traffic controllers going on furlough so that one day out of 10, air traffic controllers will not be working, meaning there will be a shortage. some say they should have moved the money around and did it some other way, but that's not the way the austerity program is in the united states and not the way the sequestration law is written. sequest
americans? how do you balance how much you allow them today, how much you allow them to clam up, how do you balance that? >> i think the obama administration has done a great job so far in this case in striking that balance. i think they were right to invoke the public safety exception to miranda, which says, hey, if you've got a guy who is a dangerous terrorist, where there may still be attacks that are imminent, where he may have co-conspirators, there may be another bomb out there, you don't have to immediately read the miranda warnings. you can do what any sensible person would do and any sensible police officer would do, first, talk to the guy and make sure there is no other imminent threat. and then i think after they did that initial questioning, they also did the right thing to move him to the civilian criminal justice system. you know, senator graham and others have suggested, oh, no, they should have held him as an enemy combatant, should have held him under the laws of war, i think the experience in the jose padilla case and other cases shows that trying one of these new categori
and the american people posted. all right? thank you very much, everybody. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] >> president obama from about 11:30 eastern today. this afternoon the associated press reports two people briefed on the investigation tell the a.p. that a pair of bombs packed into pressure cookers and concealed in duffel bags blew up within seconds of each other. three people were killed, 170 -- over 170 have been injured. about an hour and a half before the president spoke, in boston, massachusetts governor deval patrick, special agent in charge, police commissioner ed davis and others briefed reporters on where they are so far in the investigation. >> everyone, thank you for coming this morning. less than 24 hours after yesterday's act of terror, we wanted to organize a briefing for you with the information that we have. the mayor is here. the members of our congressional delegation, all of the law enforcement leadership, we have several people who want to present to you this morning and take your quest
including a clearly frustrated president obama. we will show that to you coming up. as a public service we will scroll the names of the senators, including democrats, who voted no on the issue. an issue supported by 90% of the americans. senator manchin, a really hero in all this, will be joining us in just a moment. sam stein is still with us in washington. joining on the set is editor and chief of "the daily beast" tina brown and host of politics nation and president of the national action network reverend al sharpton. in washington the moderator of "meet the press" david gregory. we will talk about guns in a moment. the big political issue of the day. updates now out of west, texas, because the weather is causing concern as they try to figure out if they can find survivors in all of this. bill karins has a closer look there. >> we have heard all morning they are waiting for first light to help getting around town and rescuing people and going through the buildings. so dangerous and no power. first light is coming now but, at the same time, severe thunderstorms are rolling through so the
. it could have been far worse. thank goodness we had the first responders there. great americans who helped out their fellow man. and two devices that were not thankfully, as damaging and as deadly as they could have been. >> megyn: you say we are all bostonnians today and president obama yesterday said there are no democrats, there are no republicans today. you don't want to say there is an upshot of a terrorist attack. but if there is any good that can come of it, maybe it is that moment of unity similar to what we felt after 9-11 where we realized we're americans first. >> yeah. when you're in a situation like that, i've been in a situation where i'm cheering on a friend running. i know a lot of you and everyone watching and megyn, you, too. you're cheering or running in the race yourself, you just want to finish. you have that goal and you just want to finish. so when i saw the eyes of the runners coming across and i think about 4:00 onto was the too -- did 4:09 was the time, they were so happy and then shear shock and what? what is happening? it is mind boggling to think that such a wo
systems. times square 2010, a car bomb failed to explode, police later arrested a pakistani-american trying to board a flight to the middle east. dan bongino's job when he was at the secret service, protect president obama with 1.8 million people on the washington mall gathered for his first inauguration. >> you can't guarantee anything. all do you in the field of security is reduce the probability of an event like this to hopefully something so miniscule so if something happens your response afterwards is enough to keep the casualties to a minimum. >> if this turns out to be domestic or international terrorism it will remind people of the difficulty of the task that we have been working against over the past ten years. >> reporter: security experts say that over the last 11 or 12 years as we've gotten farther and farther away from 9/11 americans have grown tired of being hassled by the tsa and the security at sporting events and this soft target a marathon underscores the fact that these threats remain very real. >> tom costello in washington for us this morning. >>> bill bratton is
. so it's also the perceived threat from pakistan inside the obama administration receded, and so people move to yemen, and so after that 2011 time frame, which was really the sort of the nadir relationship of the u.s.-pakistan, the members of american undercover officers i think has gone down significantly. >> how many of the paramilitary groups spoke of earlier are in pakistan? how are they funded? how significant are they? >> the american -- >> no, the pakistan side. >> well, so if you, this is another subject of dispute. the pakistani government has, you know, denies that it does -- has any support, and i think there is legitimate concern while there was once support for these troops that were used as a force for india, have carried out attacks inside pakistan, and so whether it's the pakistani pal ban rather than the afghan taliban which is what is known, they carry out on pakistani soil so i think there is this fear among pakistani security officials that this monster's been created that has, to some degree, gone back on its creator and hurt and killed thousands and thousand
had a video tribute from the president who is an african-american. the keynote speaker, the attorney general who is an african-american . that did not happen by itself -- it is not herman.=- permanenet. they did not give mr. obama and the first lady the deed to the white house. they give them a four-year lease. [laughter] they will have to leave area and what will happen between now and then and what will happen after they are gone. we need to be guided by those that helped make that possible. we need to use this window of time properly. if we relax and act like the struggle is over, we will end up worse than it was before we started. [applause] i would like each of you to take two minutes to tell us where you see where we are and where we are generally headed. i just want an overview from you, then i want to go to our legends. >> thank you very much. to the pastor of the church, great to be in this beautiful place this morning. [applause] reverend al sharpton, another big round of applause. [applause] thank him for his friendship and my colleagues on the panel, i am the brother in
to something that affects most americans americans today and and a subject that the obama administration has really been focused on for these past four years. we are going to remain focused in this area for the next four years. that is achieving real evidence-based drug policy reform to both reduce drug use but also the consequences. more and more the debate about drug policy in america is becoming extremely polarized. one side advocates in believing that legalization is the only path to drug policy reform. legalization is described as solving mexico's organized crime and violence problems and creating a windfall for state and local coffers here in the united states and along with many other benefits that are all talked about legalization. and you have the other hand. the other hand we have the enforcement centric war on drugs that was mentioned in my introduction and that approach and that is one that treats addiction primarily as a criminal justice problem despite this ever-growing body of scientific knowledge and evidence that this approach is counterproductive and is not effective. sloga
out of the country. so it's also, the perceived threat from pakistan inside the obama administration has receded. so people have been moved to yemen, and so after that 2011 timeframe, which really was the sort of the deer of the relationship, the numbers of americans undercover officers i think has gone down significantly. >> host: how many of those paramilitary groups that you spoke of earlier are in pakistan? how are they funded? how significant are they? >> guest: the americans -- >> host: theakstan side. >> gu thiis another subject of dispute. the pakistani government has, you know, denies it has any support for lash car. i think there is concerned that while there was once support for these groups that were used as a proxy force to india, have started to carry out attacks inside pakistan. and so whether the the pakistani taliban which is different than the afghan taliban which operates, which is what come only known as the taliban which is the u.s. fight in pakistan. -- afghanistan. there is this fear among pakistani security officials that this monster has been created that has
